Title: My letter to NH radio station manager over being kept off the air
Post by: RidleyReport on April 20, 2016, 12:12:39 pm
After getting kept off the air today, I just sent this e-mail to one of the managers at New Hampshire's WGIR-AM. Or maybe I should say iHeartRadio.   I was referring to their show New Hampshire Today hosted by Jack Heath, which I've been calling into for a few years. 

"Question:  Why is NHT apparently so hard for listeners to call into and get on the air?  I call once a week or so, always on-topic but only get through to air about half the time.   And I usually get about a minute.   Around a month ago I simply got hung up on 30 seconds into the comment...which was not much more than a summary of key police statistics.   I don't think I'm disrespectful to the show or anything, but even if that were the case it seems questionable for a talk program to discourage talk.  I rarely hear other non-guest listeners get through, while most of the other AM talk shows in the state are appropriately accessible to listener calls.

It's your turf; you get to do what you want with it...but listeners get to raise concerns regarding access.

You can pass this on to Jack if you wish.  But who is the appropriate person for me to raise this concern with at the top?

I got a nice response later directing me higher up the chain.

More nice letters have flown back and forth including one from Jack.   I'm standing down.
